I have a previous version of this Bissell spot cleaner that is green in color, and works great!! Got this one (the newer version) as a backup for my winter house. Let me tell you, the new one is smaller, less capacity for the cleaner and the dirty water, and harder to clean up after use. It has smaller holes to fill and empty the water, and no heater for the water in the hose....yet the same price. If you can find one of the older models, buy it. It does the job, cleaning up doggies oops and spills on the carpet, but more of a toy than a rugged piece of equipment.
